    Lulu's! No one really gives her credit for her jumps, but I think a lot of them were great!

    Her salchow during this particular performance (94 Olys) was the first one I thought of when I saw this thread. It was very sweeping and quietly executed.

    I always loved Liz Manley's even if they weren't textbook.

    Yuka - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws8zT...ailpage#t=145s I always loved her edge jumps. I bet there are some even better videos than this one.

    Thanks Kwanatic

    Here's another - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fplqu...tailpage#t=65s and another http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8JRN...ailpage#t=145s

    See Trenary example here (not clean landing on the triple sal):

    An "inside axel" is a different jump entirely. Takes of from the forward inside edge of the other foot and rotates 1.5 times.
    See example at 4:10 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKv3NJhtm3I
    One foot axel is also known as a College named after Cecilia College, and the inside axel is also known as a Boekl, named after Willy Boekl. A boekl landed on the other foot is called a Boekay. There have been some amazing double boekl's landed on roller. Such a wierd jump though.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I understand that the two-foot take-off in a Salchow is accepted technique now.

    Here is a perfect Salchow by Julia Sebestyen.
    Julia Sebestyen 2001 Euros LP

    And look at every other jump (and spins), it was an amazing performance !!!

    One of my favourite salchows is the one done by Midori Ito on the back of her double axel at 1987 Worlds. The whole sequence is totally amazing, but the sal is huuuuuuge and I think one of the best she ever landed.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9KJw...ailpage#t=202s

    ETA: Just re-watching that again, teh sequence seems to take up almost the entire width of the rink!! Another +3 GoE element from Midori

    It is. I'm not a skater so I don't know, but it seems like it would be easier to jump off from two feet. I've always wondered about this and also the loop which many people do from two feet unless it's the second jump in a combo.

    The free foot brushing the ice on the salchow take-off does not equate to jumping from two feet. The skating leg (left leg for CCW skater) has to bear the majority of the skater's weight on the entrace and take-off. Once he's in the air then he switches his weight over to the right side of his body. Saying that a skater take-off from two feet implies that his body weight is evenly distributed between both legs before take-off, and this is simply not possible to do for any of the 6 standard skating jumps.

    It may appear someone is taking off from two feet but they aren't doing that on the loop.

    I guess. It just seems like some skaters might use their free foot to push off on the ice.
    However, I think it might make it harder to rotate compared to having the free leg just swing around.

    I think so too and it's likely why she attempted quad sals in her day. It was the easiest jump but an excellent jump for her technique-wise.
